HistoryEdit

Atlético Marbella had its heyday in the mid-1990s, with four consecutive appearances in the second division, having spent the vast majority of its early existence in the third (after Segunda División B was created in 1977, it became the fourth level) and the regional leagues.

Until 1995 the club was owned by Jesús Gil, a controversial businessman and also mayor of Marbella, as well as the chairman of Atlético Madrid. Subsequently, he sold it to Slobodan "Boban" Petrović, an entrepreneur from Serbia.[1]

Finally, in 1997, CA Marbella disappeared, due to the many debts contracted in previous seasons.[2]
